Computer science and another field

Technology holds an enormous value in our world, creating a path for advancement for young people. 

However, not everyone is a programmer and many people are interested in other fields. Almost every new company starts out by using technology in some way, meaning that many new jobs require at least some technological understanding. 

This scholarship seeks to support the future generation of well-rounded technological leaders who are interested in multiple fields.

Any undergraduate student who is double-majoring in computer science and in another field may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us about your experience with computers and technology as well as your passion for another field and how the two would come together in the future. Also, upload a portfolio of technical achievements, such as websites, code, etc.

I have loved computers ever since I can remember! I always thought they were so fascinating, and I always thought it was remarkable what they are capable of. My name is Taylor Hendrickson, and I am from Salt Lake City, Utah. I am an incoming second-year student at the University of Utah. Last year I took a college-level digital media class where I learned so much. In recent years I have learned how to code and program in simple languages like JavaScript. I have learned how to professionally edit photos and videos using Adobe software like Photoshop and Premiere. I have even put together some animations and some 3d animations using Adobe After Effects and Maya software. I am most proud of the certificates that I have earned by testing using Adobe and Microsoft programs. As much as I love technology by itself, I also have a great passion for multiple subjects in business. Including finance and information systems. I have been researching the information systems major that my school offers, and it sounds very appealing to me. They teach many different subjects like coding in Python and an introduction to cloud computing and data mining. The remarkable thing is that the information systems major correlates so much with technology and will be a wonderful opportunity for me to learn and add more skills to my skillset while using technology. Computers and technology will never be irrelevant in our world. Technology will keep expanding and will give us more to build our world upon. Information systems also focus on technology with an emphasis on cyber security. This is what I am most excited about because I would love my future career to be a cyber security specialist of some sort. I know that I still have a lot to learn but I believe that my passion for information systems will take me on the right path. I feel as if that would be perfect for me since computer science and cyber security fit hand and hand together. I love helping people and if I could use my skill set in technology to ensure that certain databases are being properly protected that would be a dream come true for me. I know that without computers and technology none of this would be possible and I would not be able to achieve my goals or follow my passions in my future occupation.
